49 | | The holiday season is filled with joyful cheer, family time, social gatherings, tasty treats, opening presents and, most importantly, sharing these festive occasions with the person you love. One of the most popular times of the year to get engaged is during the holidays because people are surrounded by family and friends who truly support and cherish them. Highlighted here are a few holiday engagement stories shared by local couples. Who knows, perhaps reading about their experiences will inspire some of you to pop the question to your significant other this holiday season. THE WATSONS Hunter and Sydney Watson met in 2017 at dental school in Augusta, Georgia. They became instant best friends and were practically inseparable. The duo soon started to date, and the rest is history. At the end of their last year of dental school, Hunter asked Sydney to marry him. They got engaged in December 2021, and in 2022 they tied the knot at Boone Hall Plantation. The couple are excited to be moving back here in 2024 to enjoy the rest of their lives in the beautiful Lowcountry. The Watson’s were happy to have Polly’s Fine Jewelry be a part of that special moment in their lives. From getting engaged to their wedding, to two years later following the birth of their son, Banks, Polly’s will always remain close to their hearts. Popping the Question BY MAURICE J.
